“Outrageous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

This San Francisco treat can't be missed. Outrageous, funny and quirky, you need to put it on your travel schedule every time you visit. It is timely comedy delivered by very talented performers.

“I couldnt stop smiling the whole time. Loved it! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

I highly recommend going to see the show. The singing, dancing & acting was fantastic. I laughed, clapped, cheered & even sang along towards the end. Sometimes it is silly & over the top but thats how its meant to be. The show includes recent events eg Royal baby christening. I managed to purchase the last seat available in the front section on the same day as the show (Wednesday night) & ended up sitting in the front row as seating for some sections is on a first come, first served basis. I arrived 45 mins before the show started.

We booked our tickets on line...easy. I have seen this show 3 times over the past 20 years and it is always a fun time and entertaining show. Not a bad seat in the house.
